Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office Crime Suppression Teams arrested 12 people in a one-night prostitution sting in Central Broward early Friday morning.
BSO’s Central Broward CST and Dania CST targeted the corridor along Northwest 27 Ave. (600-900 block) during a successful one-night sting operation called 47 Op. Undercover detectives solicited sex for money from street-level prostitutes. The four-hour operation netted 12 arrests.
